Each year, the American Bar Association Section of Taxation hosts a Low Income Taxpayer Representation Workshop in Washington, D.C. Last week, the workshop’s focus was the Collection Due Process Summit Initiative. We held two panels that looked at CDP history, the Summit Initiative, and how to work with the Taxpayer Advocate Service for systemic change. Following that, there were breakout sessions focused on the stages of Notices, Appeals, and the Judicial levels. I helped to plan and organize this year’s workshop, taking part in a panel, a breakout discussion on CDP notices and reporting back to the group. I provide input from the CDP Notices breakout session and discuss the workshop. It was a successful gathering of practitioners for fruitful education and discussion of CDP issues.
